Call for Nominations: Nursing Homes Central Negotiating Team

September 24, 2018

The central nursing homes collective agreements will expire June 30, 2019.  As a result, it is time to initiate the process of electing a new Nursing Homes Central Negotiating Team and to make the call for nominations from members in nursing homes bargaining units.

Accordingly, I am pleased to attach the following for your information:

  • Nomination and Résumé Forms
  • Mandate – Nursing Homes Central Negotiating Team (NHCNT)
  • Policy #18.6 – ONA Group/Central Negotiating Teams Election Policy

A scanned copy of the completed Nomination Form and a Word copy of the Résumé Form must be received by the Office of the Chief Executive Officer/Chief Administrative Officer via email to chiefelectoralofficer@ona.org no later than 1600h, October 18, 2018 to be validated.  The name, Local # and bargaining unit must appear on the Nomination Form.

Please note the length restriction found in #11 of the ONA Group/Central Negotiating Teams Election Policy (contained within). In addition, to have a 500 word article and photograph appear in a pre-election ONA publication and on the ONA website, you must provide me with these documents no later than 1600h on October 18, 2018. Note that information provided must be in MS Word format.  Please refer to the ONA Group/Central Negotiating Teams Election Policy for details on all campaign communication opportunities.

Online voting (web and/or phone based) will be used for this election.  Information will be sent to all members in the nursing homes sector by November 5, 2018.  Members will be entitled to vote for one candidate from their region, unless the position has been acclaimed.

Orientation for the Nursing Homes Central Negotiating Team is scheduled for January 28 – February 1, 2019.  Successful candidates are expected to attend.
